This riad is very pretty, each room is delightfully decorated and the detail in typical Moroccan style makes it lovely to stay in. The first night our shower was not functioning so to apologise we were offered a free upgrade and dinner which was lovely from the owner.
We did however feel that the staff were not as friendly or honest as other places we stayed in morocco. For example, we wanted to use our own guide that we had been recommended however the riad insisted on using their guide. The first guide was great (Siad) but we did end up In a carpet shop. The next day our guide was not very talkative and could not speak a lot of English, he also didn't explain any history to us.
The day trip to Maknes and the roman ruins is well worth while. It is very expensive however and I'm sure you could get it cheaper if you organized it yourself. We went in a group of 4 and the price of the car was €240 for the day and this does not include a guide.
Overall we enjoyed our stay but we just found the staff to be very focused on money and they could have been nicer.
Also the noise is an issue, we hardly slept one night due to workers and people shrieking in the street.
